Yes absolutely, I was not the dude that left that bolt out, btw there were a lot of bolts left out! Does anyone know what the size and thread pitch this bolt is? If not I can buy the original but it takes a few weeks from Yamaha, they are slow to ship lately, at least down here.
I've caught at least three bikes in person that were missing that bolt. I think it's a common miss during tire changes and/or the torque is rarely done causing it to vibrate loose... Luckily, you only REALLY need it when hitting the rear brake while going backwards. Otherwise, the tab will just be thrust against the swingarm and you'll get good braking. You might hear a metallic clang at first application, though.
You will see that it says Bolt, Flange 95814-10025-00. So you have 10025 in the part number and the trick is usually the first 2 numbers are 10 which is the bolt size and the last two are 25 which should be the length.
